Ducks around the Serpentine in London and around the Spree in Berlin
sound effects in all these locations
Calm and surrealist nothing is real in the composition which combines Improvisation & Field Recordings.
For all the improv part Anton uses a handmade Prepared Chamber in wood, using its natural reverb, associated with many metal elements like springs and a home made calimba build with a trap of pigeon.
This meditative sound art composition is contemplative, very languishing melody at the rate of the nature and reveal numerous sound effects in forest produced by my own movements ; Bough, shock of pebbles, crushed leaves...
This composition by Anton Mobin takes part of his serie of recomposed soundscape, with âMicro-Climatâ released by Konkretourist netlabel.
